*And the Winner is…#4, Olivia Douglas!
Howard B. Wigglebottom and the Power of Giving: A Christmas Story is a cute story, with a wonderful message, and a great lesson to be learned. Howard B. Wigglebottom is a bunny who wants everything! For him, Christmas is the season for “getting” rather than giving. I’m sure there are a lot of children out there who are the same way. By the end of the story Howard learns all about giving and sharing. The illustrations are beautiful! At the end of the book there’s a “Lessons and Reflections” section which goes over some topics and questions that you can discuss with your child. This would also make a great book for a pre-school or elementary class. There are more Howard books which all teach a lesson of some sort, including telling the truth and learning to listening. “Howard B. Wigglebottom learns to listen” might be helpful for my four year old!
The Howard B. Wigglebottom books are a part of the We Do Listen Foundation. The We Do Listen Foundation is a non-profit organization who’s goal is to enable children to feel good about themselves and to learn important lessons on listening, bullying, anger management, moderation, truth, divorce, peer pressure, belonging, generosity, sportsmanship, and attention. It’s geared for children 4-8 years old, although some older children may enjoy it as well. Their website is filled with such educational resources as animated books, games, and songs as well as lessons to be learned. My daughter enjoyed the games, especially finding Howard! I like that they are not only fun, but they all help develop certain skills. I LOVE the animated books. They are the same books that you can purchase hard-cover copies of, but you can “watch and listen” to them online. The lessons found on the site are a really helpful resource.
